Dijon vs Monaco
2017/18 French Ligue 1
Date: Sunday, 13th August 2017
Kick off at 16:00 UK/ 17:00 CET
Venue: Stade Gaston-Gerard.
The defending champions got off to a positives tart to the new Ligue 1 campaign last Friday when they saw off Toulouse 3-2 at Stade Louis II.
Monaco should not have too many troubles maintaining the perfect score after the second round and the meetings with Dijon on Sunday evening at Stade Gaston-Gerard.
The hosts have barely saved the top tier status in the last term and it seems that Olivier Dall’Oglio and his men are in for a yet another struggling season.
The Mustards sold their top scorer Lois Diony to Saint-Etienne leaving the hole in the final third.
Diony’s absence can best be notable by the look at Dijon’s most recent results since the hosts failed to find the back of the net in four of their last five games (including pre-season friendlies and the season opener with Olympique Marseille).
Leonardo Jardim still has a massive grey cloud above his head when it comes to potential departure of his star man Kylian Mbappe who is very close to Real Madrid move.
Mbappe featured the opening game against Toulouse, but he was not among three scorers.
His fellow striker Radamel Falcao, however, was, confirming a decent shape and he should be capable of exploiting the holes in Dijon’s defensive line to the max this Sunday.
Dijon vs Monaco: Head to head
Monaco dominated the match-up with Dijon historically as Les Monegasques won three and drew two of their five clashes with Dijon.
